Create tagged, accessible PDF/UA directly from InDesign

MadeToTag is an Adobe InDesign plug-in to properly prepare InDesign documents for export as an accessible, tagged PDF file – much more easier, faster and more reliable. The tagged PDF complies with the terms of the PDF/UA-STANDARD, the international PDF standard for universal accessibility. PDF/UA is important to organizations and companies delivering documents that need to comply with legal obligations requiring accessible content (including WCAG 2.2, Section 508 in the US, AODA, EAA, EU Mandate 376, Britain’s BS 8878, and others), but also for all those who see a moral need to provide proper accessible documents.

The MadeToTag UI is based on a SEVEN STEP GUIDE, which will lead you safely and intuitively through the tasks, to generate the tagged PDF file, without missing any important step to meet all legal requirements.

Tagged PDFs are essential for accessibility, so that screen reader devices for visually impaired people or reading software for users with learning disabilities can provide rich access to a PDF’s content and for an easy navigation through the document.
